Surgical Information to Detect Design Problems with MOOSE

Muhammad Usam Bhatti, Stéphane Ducasse
2007 Workshop on FAMIX and Moose in Reengineering  
The quality attributes, such as understandability and modularity manifest their importance in the later part of the software life where a lot of resources are required to maintain or reuse software whose quality has been marred by the urgencies of time to market. In this position paper, we present and analyze an existing system meant to be reused on various product lines. We intend to use the MOOSE framework to precisely identify the needs of a reengineer in terms of code-smells, visualization
